Change this ability to read:
‘Add 2 to armour saving throws for a model equipped with a slabshield (invulnerable saving throws are not affected).’
Page 135 – Take Cover!
Change the rules text of this Stratagem to read:
‘Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase when your opponent selects one of your Astra Militarum Infantry units as a target. You can add 1 to armour saving throws you make for this unit until the end of the phase.’
Much for the same reason Shroudpsalm doesn't technically do anything, there is no such thing as "armour saves" in 8th edition. Only a save characteristic and invulnerable saves. I really wish GW
would hire a technical writer.
Or that they errata the BRB
to call saves armour saves.
Just posting for my fellow rules followers so they know Slab Shields and the Stratagem aren't worth the points now. Personally I am sad that GW
has made these non-functional. I am interested in knowing how many people will house rule it to work on normal saves. You Make Da Call!
